Further information

In this workshop, you will be shown three different hand-building techniques; pinching, coiling and slab building. These techniques are the fundamentals of hand-built pottery and can be used alone or combined to make all kinds of shapes, forms and objects. 

During this class you are welcome to play and experiment, making any object/s you like. Due to the limited class size of 6 people, you will have plenty of 1-on-1 time for questions and support. 

In the second part of the course, you will get to glaze your pieces using the studio glazes. After this, your pottery will be fired and ready to collect in about 3 weeks. We will notify you via email when the pieces are ready for collection.

Please bring your own apron. You can also purchase one at our shop. 

Please note that we can only keep pieces 2 months after you have been notified.

Cancellation policy:

Classes are non-refundable but you can rebook to a future class, provided you give at least 7 days notice.
